Offaly band JigJam have paid tribute to the late Dolores O'Riordan, the former lead singer of The Cranberries. 

O'Riordan was found dead in her hotel in London last week having travelled there for a recording session with her bandmates. 

In the wake of the news, tributes flooded in from around the world for the former Cranberries front woman, who spearheaded the band's chart domination in the 1990s.

Among those was a video from the band JigJam, made up of Tullamore's Jamie McKeogh, Daithí Melia and Cathal Guinan, as well as Tipperary's Gavin Strappe, who sang the Cranberries hit 'Zombie' in O'Riordan's honour.

The song became iconic in the 1990s, bringing the band to a worldwide audience and making O'Riordan's voice instantly recognisable.

The Limerick woman is being laid to rest on Tuesday at Saint Ailbe’s Church, Ballybricken, Co Limerick. 

May she rest in peace.
